Abstract

Metal-enhanced fluorescence (MEF) of quantum dots (QDs) and its potential application in microarray-based immunoassays was investigated using silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) prepared by the in situ photoreduction of Ag+ inside a multilayer film consisting of poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI) and hyaluronic acid (HA). UV-Vis spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy confirmed the formation of well-dispersed AgNPs within the multilayer films, the thickness and the amount of which depended on the number of HA layers. Using AgNPs-containing hybrid multilayered films, it was possible to observe the MEF effect of adsorbed QDs, which could be tuned by the thickness of interlayer spacer film prepared of the layer-by-layer assembly of PEI and poly(styrene sulfonate). When the MEF-inducing hybrid film was used as a platform for immunoassay, a significant improvement in the fluorescence signal and sensitivity of the biosensing were observed in the presence of AgNPs in comparison with films that did not contain the nanoparticles.
